Not surprisingly, innovation is encouraged and recognized throughout Canada. Solutions, simplicity, and entertainment are often the resulting outcomes. What’s not to love?
Since 1982, The Ernest C. Manning Awards Foundation, a volunteer run charitable Foundation, continues to support Canadian innovators of all ages. Canadians who have exhibited inventive talent and successfully marketed their innovations may be eligible to win one of four awards to further fund their creations. Young Canadians partaking in Canada-Wide Science Fairs are also at an advantage; they are eligible to one of eight Young Canadian Awards. It’s a simple as that! Bring your idea, a passion for innovation, and a positive attitude. For more on The Ernest C. Manning Awards Foundation, visit their site here.
